This embarassing story took place when my Mum lived and worked in Vancouver. Like any big city it takes forever to get from one place to another and parking is a nightmare. On this particular day Mum had an appointment with a doctor about her back in the morning and an appointment with a doctor in the afternoon about her kidneys. No, she's not a hypochondriac - she just tries to arrange appointments all on one day : )
On this particular day she had on a new black skirt and blazer and was feeling particularly "stylish", she had quite a walk from her car to the doctors office and when she was going up in the elevator she noticed that people where looking down as they usually do and then peaking up at her. Of course she thought it was because she was looking so fabulous that day. She got to the doctors office, sat down in a chair and kind of stretched out her legs and gasped in horror!
She was wearing one suede loafer with a 1/2" heel and one leather pump with a 2" heel! Yup, that's my Mum - she is NOT a morning person at all and she kind of wanders around in a daze until about 11:00.
What she couldn't get over is how she walked all the way from her car on two different sized heels and didn't even notice! Of course when she was walking back to the car she was wobbling like a drunken sailor. Needless to say she had to go buy another pair of shoes before her next doctors appointment spending an insane amount of money because they only stores around her were expensive and it would take way too long to go back home and change.
She kept her feet well hidden when she was in with the back doctos office - I think if he saw her shoes it wouldn't take him long to diagnose the problem of a sore back. He would probably have recommended that she wear two shoes with the same height heel.
Yes, I know - how does she make it through each day! I try to give her the once over before she goes to work each morning : )
